9 Months After Recruitment, Over 7,000 Kaduna Teachers Await Posting, Salaries

In anticipation of a new job as a secondary school teacher with the Kaduna State Government, Franca had resigned from her appointment in a private school located within the Kaduna metropolis.

She received a letter of offer of provisional appointment on July 19, 2021, but up till now, she and over 7,000 others are yet to be posted.

 With the new appointment letter, she believed life would be better as she would have a more stable job with a more robust and consistent salary, compared to what she earned monthly in the private school.

Franca said she joined other recruited teachers for the documentation and induction process and even opened a new salary account as requested by their new employer.

“Honestly, I was very happy when I received the appointment letter as a secondary school teacher with the state government last year. I quickly resigned from the private school where I was working to take up the new job,” she said.  

Daily Trust Saturday recalls that in January 2019, 62,000 applicants had sat for an aptitude test, in which 14,000 were later screened as prospective teachers by the Kaduna State Teachers Service Board (KSTSB). It was out of this number that 7,600 were eventually recruited.
